Tao Inspiration – True Wisdom

book of knowledge

True wisdom is a loss of misconceptions rather than an accumulation of knowledge.
Do not hoard facts and call yourself wise.

Sages realize they have always had enough,
And so do not seek more for themselves. Β *

~ Lao Tzu

These words made me pause today. Gathering more and more knowledge doesn’t make us wise.

Wisdom comes from within us, and through our experience of life.

If you are always seeking more knowledge, then you may be missing out.

… You are enough.
